Rien by New Tendency

Table Island by OfficeoriginairaRien (left) designed by Christian Metzner for New Tendency offers a bunch of different features at once: Made of borosilicate glass it’s heatproof and extremely durable. Due to it’s unique form it may well be used as a jigger: It’s cone-shaped base works as an exact measuring unit of 4 cl..

Table Island by Officeoriginair (right) is an organising tray made from cork that can store everyday belongings whilst simultaneously serving as an Ipad stand.

December by New TendencyHash by New TendencyNew tendency’s floor lamp December (left) created by Sebastian Schönheit is composed of three components – a base, a rod and a circular lamp head. The cylindrical stand offers stability as well as storage tray for a book or a cup of tea

Hash by New Tendency (right) is a steel coat rack that can easily be assembled or disassembled as each of it’s rods is produced and connected separately. At the top of each rod is a notch for hangers, garments and bags. 

Balloon by Uli BuddeMagazine Vase by OfficeoriginairUli Budde’s table lamp Balloon (left) is modeled on the basis of an ancient oil lamp. In contrast to it’s historic counterpart, Balloon uses an LED lamp as light source. The light radiates from the interior of the lamp and is diffused by a reflector, creating an indirect shimmer.

Officeoriginair’s Magazine Vase  (right) is a functional yet stylish newspaper holder that can easily be lifted and dropped thanks to it’s handle. The Magazine Vase can be personalised in an instant by simply changing the handle which comes in two different colours.
